Munich - Allianz Arena
A view of the Allianz Arena in Munich

One of five new stadia built for the World Cup, the 59,000 capacity Allianz Arena cost the most at 190m.

The three-tiered ground north of Munich will host the tournament's first match.

It is quite a sight, both inside and out where a spectacular translucent facade, made up of 2,874 panels, is lit up at night in a variety of colours.

Munich's rival teams - Bayern and TSV 1860 - share the stadium. But it was Englishman Owen Hargreaves who scored the ground's first Bundesliga goal.

DID YOU KNOW?

The decision to move out of the old Olympic Stadium, in which Germany won the 1974 World Cup, and build a new stadium won 65.8% of the vote in a referendum which had a 37.5% turn out - the highest in a Bavarian referendum.
